CDI Highlighting Empower 2019

Thank you to all who attended Empower 2019 both in-person and through live-stream. It was another successful year, with over 4,000 attendees from around the world, this conference did not disappoint.

The event brought Users and VAR’s from all professional backgrounds to network and gained new insights into Laserfiche product features, new trends in business process automation, customer success stories, and the release of Laserfiche 10.4.

If you attended the event, we hope you had a chance to stop by and connect with us at the booth. It was great to see so many of you.

Not only is Empower a great place for Laserfiche Users to learn and network, but the CDI staff also takes full advantage of all that Empower has to offer. With that, here are the CDI staff’s top Empower Conference “takeaways”:

Looking to expand, “Laserfiche Avante will now support subscription licensing, so adding blocks of education and community users will be supported. Laserfiche Rio will support SAML authentication protocol.” Patrick Welsch, President of CDI

“One of the most exciting things I saw was the new automation features available for Records Management in Workflow. They are going to make Records Management so much easier!”Jessica Welsch, Consulting Director

“I am excited about the ability to embed forms into Web Access, such a useful tool for so many of our customers.” – Candice Schafer, Project Manager

“My favorite part about Empower was meeting our customers and learning about the innovative ways they are using Laserfiche and integrations from CDI to streamline and improve their business processes.” – Michael Mathys, Development Director

“I think one of the best things I learned was the ability of the LF directory server to have a Security Token Service out in the DMZ allowing you to use windows authentication from the outside without having to expose the internal servers.” – Mike Richardson, Support Director

“I enjoyed the advanced search and syntax class because it introduced a lot of tips and tricks. I learned the most efficient ways to get to documents and files when your not sure what you are looking for. Also, a new feature I cannot wait to use is the all-inclusive homepage!”-

Shaun Williams, Project Manager

“I enjoyed learning about the upcoming changes for 10.4, especially licensing since it will benefit many CDI customers, as well as the updates to forms allowing rich format text.” – Jenn LeMere, Account Manager

I found that utilizing Forms in conjunction with Workflow to be truly compelling. It’s a robust business processing engine that can run in tandem with or replace multiple applications to reduce IT resources, duplication of effort and staffing once fully deployed and optimized.– Gerard McMahon, Account Executive

“I found Empower to be an incredibly exciting, unique, and valuable experience.” – Stephen Krutzfeldt, Business Process Consultant

“The thing I love most about Empower is that it’s a melting pot of all the best ideas and most passionate users. You can learn innovative ways to get the most out of the software you have, and solve problems you didn’t think possible.” – Zach Hanson, Account Manager
